ORAKZAI AGENCY - A tribal jirga of eighteen tribes from Orakzai Agency Monday asked the federal government to honour its pledge of sending Internally Displaced Persons back to homes by March 15 otherwise they would be left with no option other than to launch a massive movement against the present government.
The tribal jirga of 18 various tribes belonging to Orajzai Agency was held under the auspices of Mutahida Qabail Party in Hangu district.
The participants of the jirga were of the view that the government should fulfill its promise it had made with them that the displaced families would be sent back homes by March 15.
The tribal elders in their speeches said that they and their forefathers had rendered a lot of sacrifices for the sake of the country, but due to the wrong polices of the rulers, they have been passing through critical phase of history.
Welcoming the appointment of Iqbal Zafar Jagrah as new governor Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, they said that they would expect that he would make arrangements for an honorable return of the displaced tribal families immediately.
